This is 1 of 4 posts of photographs I took this past week at the reservoir in Easton, CT. The first photo is my best ever of a Great Egret! I was thrilled I was able to time this shot perfectly. There were turtles in the foreground of these shots.

The first photo is my entry for the following:

Camera Critters #277
I'd Rather Be Birding
Weekly Top Shot #93

Isn't he a wonderful looking bird. You got some great shots of him Anne, and turtles too. Looks like a lovely area. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Wow! that first one in flight is magnificent and it's so difficult to capture birds while flying. These are exceptional shots.

Those egret shots are gorgeous. Love the greenery of the habitat.

Very impressive pictures of a beautiful and majestic bird ... your timing, as you said, was perfect to catch him stretching his wing. And I have to admit, my eyes were so glued on the Egret, that I would have missed the turtles if you hadn't pointed them out ... Great pictues!

Stunning!!!! I love egrets, they're so beautiful. You did yourself proud. And I know the ecstatic feeling you got when you snapped the shutter in perfect timing with that first image...extraordinary.

Egrets are such regal birds - I've missed them since I moved from New Orleans.
